          • Over 18yrs since I have driven the 427 Powered '66 F100 so a couple months ago dragged it out of storage and into shop.

            Pretty much where it's at right now. Doing some major upgrades to the drivetrain and suspension/brakes.

            • Major Brake Upgrade! Baer 14" 6 Piston custom fit. Always wanted to have better than the stock 1973-79 Front Discs. This should slow 'er down . . Same on all 4 corners!

              • Since I had to change the bolt pattern because of a special order wheel I upgraded the 9" center from 28 spline to a much tougher 31 spline unit along with 4340 Chromemoly axles.

                    • More setbacks with the health but keep plugging away. Hour here a hour there . .
                      A couple weeks ago started to build a new 304 Stainless exhaust system from the home made headers back. Right side is now done and left side up to rear axle.

                      Now that parts are rolling in hope to update this thread more often. Do have some updates on Eco2 also. (Sold Eco1 so I could finish Eco2 and 427 Truck)

                      Boss9 TT Project : Engine machine work now done except final balancing. Trying to decide which Trans to use for the 1500 daily driver HP. Supposed to meet up with Frank Merkl in next week or so when He arrives in PHX. Kinda leaning towards one of his C-6 Units either that or a Billet TH 400.

                      I did pick up a few more 1966 Trucks too. One is my daily driver a 1966 F100 Ranger. AZ since new.
                      A 1966 F100 4x4 2.7 Project kind of do I or dont I but have all the pieces to build from including a stock 1966 F100 4x4.
